Pirates Cut Chase D'Arnaud, Anderson Hernandez, Eight Others

There's been some discussion the last few days about the Pirates roster getting a bit unwieldy because they still had everyone not named Gerrit Cole in camp. Well we finally have a new round of cuts. Dejan Kovacevic announced the following on his Twitter feed:

option SS Chase d'Arnaud, LHP Rudy Owens, LHP Jeff Locke, RHP Duke Welker, reassign six to reduce roster to 48. No surprise cuts.

And

Those reassigned: OF Robbie Grossman, INF Anderson Hernandez, C Tony Sanchez, C Ramon Cabrera, RHP Mike Crotta, RHP Logan Kensing

UPDATE by Charlie: Games are starting this week in minor-league camp, so it makes sense that there would be a round of cuts now. The only ones who are even mildly surprising are D'Arnaud and especially Hernandez, since they could have been in competition for the utility infielder job.
